TRAVELOGUE: Hong Kong jiē, jiē dào

Hong Kong is frequently described as a place where "East meets West", reflecting the culture's mix of the territory's Chinese roots with influences from its time as a British colony.

Hong Kong balances a modernised way of life with traditional Chinese practices. Like New York, a city that never sleeps....but it does.
